I’ve designed a wall hanging for a baby’s nursery in beautiful shades of teal, salmon and rose. The image was stamped with the recently released Lenton Rose stamp set by Flourishes available at Stamper’s Dream. The image was water colored with Tombow markers (marker numbers are listed at the bottom of this post under “Supplies“).
When my boys were born, I had a rocking chair in their room so that I could rock them to sleep. As they grew older, I held them in my lap and read to them from the rocking chair. This little mouse brings back memories of me reading to them.
I passed the largest Spellbinders™ Lattice Rectangle die through the Grand Calibur and cut the lattice rectangle on 140 lbs. cold-pressed water color paper. The image was then stamped and water colored. When I think of babies, I think of ribbons and lace. The Lattice Rectangles are perfect for weaving ribbon through.
This picture shows the dimension in the Grand Labels 11 panels. I placed the water colored image on 2mm foam tabs, as well as the panel the water colored image is adhered to.
A hallmark of most of my wall hangings is a bow that I’ve usually had fun playing with. I stamped extra leaves for the teal roses I made using Rose Creations dies. All stamped images in the design were stamped with Versamark and embossed with Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder by Ranger.
Small butterflies were punched and then glittered for added sparkle. The largest butterfly was made with a Fiskars punch and the two smaller butterflies were made with a Fancy Crafts Twin Punch. I lightly sprinkled glitter on the edges of the rose petals. Petite glass beads were adhered to the flowers’ centers with Perga Glue.
Mini Gypso Prima flowers were added to the teal roses, as well as sprigs of pearls. Water colored leaves from the Lenton Rose stamp set are tucked under the rose.
Tombow markers were used for the wash of teal and green placed on the background of the stamped image, starting out bold in the lower left corner and softly fading into the sky.
